Dec 8th, 2020: Residents Working with COVID Patients:

  • Family Practice Residents are healthcare workers and learners. Hence, they are expected to care for patients according to the guidelines and recommendations provided by Public Health and the Health Authority in which they are working.
  • Family Practice residents are expected to provide a wide scope of care with appropriate supervision and may be allowed to intubate all patients, including COVID positive patients, at  the discretion of the attending physician and within the comfort level of the  involved resident and attending team.
  • See PGME and BCCDC resources

In response to the Provincial Health Orders/Guidelines announced Nov 19th, 20:

  • Any mandatory pre-approved in-person academic activities submitted to PGME may continue, on the assumption that the approved terms of holding the event are maintained (ex. PPE).
  • Worksites and educational activities are excluded from the existing PHO travel restrictions. Resident travel for clinical rotations/electives in-province is permitted.
  • Out of province electives are also permitted, assuming there are no quarantine requirements in the jurisdiction where the elective is based
